Early last night, the Campbell County Health Department advised Mayor E.L. Morton a person had been diagnosed with the COVID-19 coronavirus in Campbell County (the southern border of Campbell County runs along Morgan and Anderson County).
This patient was tested by medical professionals and is remaining in their home. The Tennessee and Campbell County Health Departments are monitoring this patient and have declared that this patient has not communicated the virus to any other person. The public need take no special action beyond good personal hygiene and cleanliness.
As always, continue frequent soap and water hand washing, use hand sanitizer, stay home if you are sick, cover your cough and sneezes and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently.
Refer to the Tennessee Health Department and CDC websites for guidance on simple measures to take at home, at work, in church or travelling to reduce the risk of obtaining or spreading germs in this or any other situation.
